THE MORRO BAY TRIATHLON IS NOVEMBER 5, 2023
We are the ultimate California coast destination beach triathlon!
Choose Olympic or Sprint Distance, and you can substitute the protected bay swim with a kayak or SUP!
Check out our NEW VIDEO below, updated in 2022 to reflect the new transition/finish/swim experience!
You can swim (or paddle) our protected Morro Bay Harbor, bike iconic Highway 1, and run the beach and boardwalk to a finish under the Gibraltar of the Pacific: Morro Rock!
Wondering what it’s like? Let the racers tell you themselves.
“The course is great – absolutely beautiful, and just a bit of “adventure” thrown in. Staff/volunteer support and finish-line activities and food were MUCH appreciated. Wish I could have stayed longer at the finish area to enjoy a beer!” – P. Taylor
“I trained a lot for this event but nothing prepared me for the actual event. The swim was harder then I thought, the bike was great and the run was challenging because of the sand element.” – M. Rockey
“I enjoyed the run. I hate to run!!!!!! So it seems odd that I would pick this section with the never ending run in the sand. But I enjoyed the changes from an open trail run to a dense wooded trail to an open beach run along the ocean to a paved fast finish. I have never participated in an event that had a run as nice as this!!!!” – B. Coop
“The scenery is amazing. That’s part of why I do this tri every year. I also love that the run course is different than other triathlons (in that it includes a variety of terrain).” – C. Bare
“The biking! It was so fun and not too hard and SO FREAKING BEAUTIFUL. And all the tough spots had CHP and/or volunteers directing traffic which was so awesome. And the course was verrry well-marked.” – L Schwartzman
“I think prior to the tri starting the transition areas was a great place to be. Participants were very nice, in good spirits, and very friendly. Also as I was finishing the swim there were several great spectators cheering me. I also enjoyed very much riding along HWY 1. It was absolutely beautiful and a fantastic ride.” – B. Reynolds
“It is very nice to ride/run along the ocean and watch the waves roll in. This is one of the best location races I have done.” – B. Coop
“I think the setting for this tri is gorgeous, and it is fun and nice to have a different type of experience with the small tri venue.” – R. Stevens
“I have participated in triathlons for the last 30 years in many different venues. This is one of the most beautiful areas in which I have done a tri.” – A. Leuker
